So we are talking about a Gibson SG Special 1963 heritage cherry color, with two P-90 and all that original. This is exactly the same as the SG Pete Townshend of The Who in concert on the Isle of Wight 1970.Je got it for 3,500 francs after an exchange with U.S. Kramer had cost me nothing. Best case .. my life!
Ultrathin Channel 22frettes ultra accessible super light and well balanced guitar, mahogany is beautiful and the points on the pearl rosewood fingerboard absolutely beautiful, nothing to do with the best guitars gibson custom shop today.
This SG was one of the cheapest in the catalog at the time and surpasses all that out today from the same manufacturer. In any case, in terms of SG
This is pure Gibson juice, two volumes, two tones and basta. On mine, all the electronics are original, so aged 50 years and there's not a crack, not a handle buzz.Le is straight, the action is low, the intonation is right, even with his old easel lead stamped
Of course this guitar played, so it is full of farts in all directions, and yet she is still beautiful! And it sounds!
Then there is the holy grail. We can absolutely play everything with this guitar, blues, reggae, funk, rock, hard rock, trash, etc ... possibly, the Jazz will not be his favorite style, but then the rest is a killer, microphones have a sacred fishing and output gain high enough, for any driver amplifier.
I have 20 years, I have tried lots of other SG from different eras, and none has ever surpassed this one (see my review on the SG MAESTRO 61 'YOUR Custom Shop). I saw a love affair with this guitar and I'll never part with it.
